Alison Carr on 'Homeland.' She was such great character to play, so clever and full of surprises. I was sad to see her go.
In Australia, it's people from Asian countries who most often recognise me. There are often people just looking at me at the supermarket, like they're shocked to think I would go to the supermarket.
When I was younger, people would always say, 'Are you a ballet dancer?' I had that look - one of those skinny kids with my hair in a bun.
I always feel this huge responsibility to the script when it arrives, keeping it confidential.
I got into medicine at university, then deferred a year to see. Then I started acting and just never went back to university.
The whole theatre world deeply attracts me. I love rehearsing and having time to make mistakes and laugh and discover things about yourself and other people - and the energy level is great.
It's a career that's enticing because you go on stage, for example, and people clap. You get that affirmation, but you can't go into acting for that because it's really your own self-belief that's going to get you through.
Acting is a freelance career... you never stop having to prove yourself and fight for work.
Sadly, my German is almost non-existent, although I did a little at school.
There's a film I did years ago, 'Love Serenade,' that I still really love. It's such an oddball sense of humor. It was a really special film for me when I did it.
I hate being pigeon-holed into anything. To me, the best thing is when the next job comes and is completely different to the one that I just had.
I think 'Rake' was a very clever crossover, actually, because it does lend itself to the city of L.A.
I grew up seeing a lot of theatre, and it was theatre that really seduced me into acting - not film or television.
It could be a stupid thing to say, but people should realize that it is easy to get concerned about yourself and to lose contact.
I think you go through a period as a teenager of being quite cool and unaffected by things.
I love the Russians for their verve, their melancholia, their vivacity, their unpredictability, and their humour.
